Scout Summer Camp 2019 – North Wales
Posted on 15 September 2019
Despite a small attendance at Summer Camp this year, nevertheless, we all had a wonderful week in the beauty of North Wales!
We had to pitch camp in a downpour, but apart from one wet day at the end of the week, the rest of the time was not too bad! We visited Conwy and the Castle, and attempted a ‘Treasure Hunt’ which the scouts were hopeless at – the Treasure remained ‘undiscovered’! We climbed Tal-y-Fan in glorious weather with the reward of superb views into Snowdonia, as well as over the North Wales coastline towards Anglesey and the Great Orme; the Scoutz also went on a three storey trampoline in an old slate mine, visited the Great Orme for tobogganing, and the tram ride up to the summit, and climbed up Conwy Mountain (bit of a misnomer this – it’s about the same height as Otley Chevin and not as steep!) for more superb views!
The last day was a wet one so we stayed on site – the Scouts, having heard of the ‘sport of boxing and chess (2 minutes boxing followed by 2 minutes of chess, repeat until there is a victor in either discipline) chose to do this, although the boxing was replaced by wrestling!
The last day was beautiful – sunny, and a drying wind which meant that again, we were able to take the tents home nice and dry! A wonderful week, and a great pity that not all the Troop were there to enjoy it!
